The Ultimate College Dorm Room Wishlist

A college dorm room wishlist is the perfect place to compile all the things you want and/or need. You are probably stressing out about how you want your room to look like or with what decorations and items you need, never fear! We are here to help! Besides the obvious basics, such as a comforter, clothing hangers, and pillows, there are several other items to add to your ultimate college dorm room wishlist.

1. 4-Piece USB Bed Lift Set

In general, bed lifts are great for your college dorm room as they not only elevate your bed but also a way to have more space to store your stuff and/or luggage underneath your bed! The best bed lift set to get is this 4-Piece USB Bed Lift Set by Studio 3B from Bed Bath & Beyond.

This particular bed lift set is extremely useful as one of the lifts features some power outlets that you can use to plug in and charge any of your electronic devices. At any college, the number of outlets in a college dorm room varies and having extra power outlets will be a lifesaver. Be sure to definitely include this item on your college dorm wishlist!

2. Posters

In terms of dorm room decorations to include on your college dorm room wishlist, posters are for sure a must-have! Besides photos from home and tapestries, another way to decorate the walls of your dorm is to tape up some posters. One can purchase posters from any store or website and these posters can be of any of your likes, interests, favorite places, movies/TV Shows, quotes, and/or anything you find interesting.

3. A Power Strip

As stated earlier with the bed lift set (See #1 above), the number of outlets in a college dorm room varies and having extra power outlets will be a lifesaver. For your college dorm wishlist, be sure you include a power strip. All you need to do is plug it into an outlet and turn the device on. With all of that being done, you’ll have some extra power outlets to charge any of your electronic devices at the same time.

8. Sets of Plastic Stacking Drawers (in various sizes)

More storage space items to include on your wishlist include sets of plastic stacking drawers. These items are useful in keeping your items and room tidy and organized. One can put whatever items they need in these stacking drawers.

This item comes in various sizes. The number of plastic stacking drawers you end up buying depends on how much stuff you end up bringing and what the layout of your college dorm room is like. Personally, I would advise that you purchase these drawers after stepping into your college dorm room for the first time and unpacking a little bit first. The reason for this is so you can get a sense of how much space you have left and how big the stacking drawers you buy, need to be.

9. A Long Wall Mirror

A long wall mirror might be more on the expensive side, but it’s worth the purchase as you can make sure you look fantastic heading off to classes, parties, events, etc. In addition, you can also check yourself out fully without having to run to the communal bathrooms and back constantly to see if your entire outfit looks good or not.
